In the official "Welcome to the Jungle" video (0:43), Izzy is seen using a black ES-137. What differentiates this instrument from the [ES-135](http://equipboard.com/items/gibson-es-135-black-custom) (which he also has been known to use) is the slightly smaller body size and use of a stop-type tailpiece in place of the trapeze style tailpiece found on the 135.more
I picked up a couple of them in Austin, actually. I got an ES 137 while we were recording there. We ended up using it a lot on the new record. We nicknamed it "Smokes," as in "it smokes every other guitar." There's always a thing you go through in the beginning of making an album, where you mike up an amp and say, "Okay, let's try a few guitars." In the end, "Smokes" blew everything else away. It’s going to be my main touring guitar as well.more
